Addressed to general readers, this text provides a view of evolution as a process based on interdependancy and the interconnectedness of all life on the planet. It aims to create a picture of the world that is relevant to our understanding of the future of our planet.
"A stunning, complex chronicle. . . proposing that only an understanding of the microcosm from which life sprang can make possible our ultimate leap beyond Earth into a human-devised supercosm."--"Publishers Weekly
